Report: Research shows accelerated failure at Fukushima Daiichi


The research team has issued a new set of papers on corrosion factors at Fukushima Daiichi.

The main paper “Spent Fuel Pools At Fukushima; Follow On Report – Corrosion” looks at corrosion factors in the spent fuel pools at Fukushima Daiichi, it also looks into the ongoing corrosion of pipes still in use to cool the melted down reactors. This paper also looks at the factors such as the long term impact of sea water injection at the plant and the ongoing uncontrolled water chemistry. [...]

The corrosion issues at Fukushima Daiichi are concerning and merit more immediate action to mitigate the potential consequences. [...]
